Walking in the spirit of love means keeping Jesus’ word and walking in the spirit. This is crucial to our love walk.
John 14:23 New King James Version (NKJV)
23 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.
We must not be influenced by anyone else’s word or instructions but Jesus’.
Galatians 5:25 New King James Version (NKJV)
25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
With Christ in you, you can stop a lot of things that are coming at you. You just gotta recognize those things that need to be stopped. With Christ in you, you can command a lot of things to come to you. And with Christ in you, you can remove a lot of things from you.
To the apostle John, love is not simply a requirement of fellowship. The bible tells us not to forsake the gathering together or fellowship with the saints. So we should be going to church. We should not forsake fellowship with the saints. We should be engaged in that fellowship and attend the church that God is leading us to so we can be learning about the spirit of love.
